President Clinton and Senator Dole participated in the last of two scheduled debates. They responded to questions from a surrounding audience of 113 persons from the San Diego area who were still undecided about for whom they were going to vote. The debate focused on a wide range of domestic concerns, including the economy, taxes, Medicare and education. There was only one foreign policy question which concerned the possibility of sending U.S. troops as peacekeepers in the Middle East. Mr. Dole made a few ethics charges against the president, but they were not nearly as severe as those he made in a speech the previous day in Coronado, California. The president responded that such personal attacks were not relevant to people who were concerned about their jobs and their children’s education. close
